A Little Pagan Poetry

Here's a little snippet I wrote late last night. Hope you enjoy.

Laying under my open window,
On a cool autumn's night.
Hand, lazily layed
In the moonlight splayed across my sheets.
Listening to the wind twist around my fingers
And dance across my wrist.
Lulling me into unconscious contentment.
Dreaming of the ones who came before me
And the ancient ones of many names.
Patiently waiting for the sun to warm the mother earth,
And the birds to sing me awake.

Not bad for being written at 2am I think. Let me know how you feel about it. I love constructive critisicim!

Blessed Be )O(

The Changing Leaves

It is now officially Autumn, which means Winter is not too far, especially here in Minnesota. As the days get shorter and the nights grow stronger we prepare ourselves for the coming snow. In my family this means breaking out the snow shovels and the cocoa mix and packing away our bikinis for next year. My favorite part of autumn is the visable changes in plant life. Everything is shutting down for the Winter, but it isn't dead yet. It's preparing and storing and slowing down, but its still very much alive. Our family has found ourselves with a squirrel pet. He hangs around in our yard, and occasionally we give him some peanuts while we watch him  prepare for the coming winter by stripping the black walnut tree in our back yard.

As everything else is slowing down for the Winter months, Pagan Lily and I have decided to rebel against the norm and start up our new blog. Be sure to check out our profile pages and feel free to contact either of us for any reason.

For now I leave you with an amazing video I found out about how Christianity came from astrology and worship for the sun, which later got misinterperated into worship of the son.
The video is called 'Religion Comes From Ancient Astrology And Sun Worhsip' and is an atehist video, but I like how they put Christianity in a different perspective and actually even makes it sound a bit plausible. But then again, anything is plausible when you live in a country where the majority of people believe that a carpenter died to save the souls of billions of people he didn't know and would never meet and then rose again a few days later and is apparently coming back for goddess know what. The video comes in 3 parts and I have posted the links below. I hope you enjoy and invite you to come back and post your response to the video.

Blessed Be )O(
